Product Details


Looking for a new adventure? The Edinburgh Trail is a fun way to explore the area you live in or discover somewhere new with friends or family. Whether you’re looking for a few hours of fun for a day out with the kids or something to pack out your holiday, Pawprint Trails have the answer!

Edinburgh has more listed buildings than anywhere in the world! Discover more fun facts like this, meet some of Edinburgh’s famous residents and explore the sights and sounds of the city on this guided treasure hunt style walk…

As much as we try to get everything perfect with every trail, sometimes mistakes happen or things change. Thank you to our amazing customers who let us know so we can help others in the future. Known Errors:

Directions between Clue 3 and Clue4: Ignore this!
Clue 15: Please turn right, not left. The close you are looking for is Anchor Close.
Clue 16: This is the Mercat Cross, not Mercast and is located on the left hand side, not right.
Clue 17: Hexagonal not Pentagonal.

As you follow the trail you’ll discover answers to the clues on buildings, signs and statues, crossing out your answers to reveal the final answers before being in with a chance to win some real treasure as part of our monthly prize draw.

Trail features:

  • Linear route, approximately 4km in distance, starting at Edinburgh Waverley Train Station and finishing at Edinburgh Castle, taking approximately 3 hours to complete
